Trump whines about the ‘dark days’ of the recession in Fox News op-ed — but doesn’t mention recent acts of terrorism

Published

In a Fox News op-ed, President Donald Trump touted job growth and a fear of the “dark days” of the recession as reasons people should vote for GOP candidates — but failed to mention the multiple acts of far-right domestic terrorism that took place in the US in recent weeks.

“For many Americans, the Great Recession brought dark days we will never forget – and never want to repeat,” Trump began in the editorial published Monday afternoon on the network’s website.

He went on to write that “thanks to Republican leadership,” Americans finally have “hope.”

Trump touted the 250,000 jobs added to the economy “in the last month alone.”

He did not mention that in October, a Floridian who is obsessed with him allegedly sent pipe bombs to multiple prominent Democrats and a man who raved online about the “migrant caravan” the president keeps bringing up shot and killed 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

“African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Asian-Americans have the best job prospects in history,” the president wrote. “The employment outlook for women is the best in more than 65 years.”

After criticizing Democrats and claiming they would “take a giant wrecking ball to your economy and your future” if they gain majorities in Congress, the president implored readers to vote for the GOP.

“With your vote, we will keep lifting millions of our citizens from welfare to work, dependence to independence, and poverty to prosperity,” Trump concluded. “And together, we will build a future of safety, security, prosperity, and freedom for all our citizens.”

Although many of the questions outlined by Comey are simply asking Mueller to rehash the findings of his final report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, he does ask some questions designed to get Mueller to offer up his own analysis of President Donald Trump's actions, such as, "Did you find substantial evidence that the president had committed obstruction of justice crimes?" and "Did you reach a judgment as to whether the president had committed obstruction of justice crimes?"
